Jacketed Cable In-Run Grounding Kit


Innovative Power Product’s jacketed cable grounding kit, LVWRSxxx-xG, is a heatshrinkable kit for grounding the neutral on jacketed concentric neutral cables at points along the run. It addresses the RUS recommendation to externally ground jacketed cables at least four (4) times per mile to limit shield voltage, avoid accidental shock and provide parallel return paths for phase-toground faults. The LVWRSxxx-xG kits have a wraparound sleeve with precoated adhesive, an external grounding kit and sealant. It is ideally suited for direct burial. The LVWRS xxx-xG kits cover a conductor size range from 4 AWG-2000 kcmil for single-core, jacketed power cables rated from 15kV to 35kV. The wraparound sleeve and sealant permanently replaces the window-stripped jacket.

LVWRSxxx-xG kits meet the 10 kA/10 cycles or 15 kA/15 cycles fault current test requirements. The kit uses an LVWRS sleeve that has been tested to meet the applicable sections of ANSI C119.1.

The LVWRSxxx-xG kits are the economical and permanent solution for grounding mid-run neutrals of 15-35kV medium voltage jacketed cables.



  • The LVWRS xxx-xG series kit contains the following:

    • Precoated, flame-retarded rejacketing sleeve
    • Stainless Steel closure channel
    • Stainless Steel constant force spring
    • Red Sealant Tape
    • Solder-blocked tinned copper braid
    • Installation Guide


  • Installation is fast and simple, no special skills required:

    • Window strip the cable jacket
    • clean cable jacket on each sidel
    • Connect solder-blocked copper braid with spring clamp
    • Wrap sealant around cable and over the solder-block
    • Wrap sleeve around cable and install closure channel
    • Center the sleeve over the opening; shrink in place
